New York Giants fans are going to have to search a little bit to find their favorite team on the TV and radio during the brief preseason.
The Aug. 10 opener at Jacksonville (7:30 p.m.) will be on WWOR-9 and WCBS-FM (101.1). The Aug. 18 game at the Jets (7 p.m.) will be on NFL Network and CBS-FM, plus the Jets’ telecast on WCBS-2 (still no word on a Giants’ “home” telecast). The Aug. 24 game with Chicago (8 p.m.) is a national telecast on WCBS-2, plus CBS-FM. The Aug. 29 game with New England (7:30 p.m.) will be on WNBC-4, the NFL Network and WCBS-AM (880).
The Giants’ regular-season game with Tampa Bay on Sept. 16 will be carried on CBS-FM since then Mets have a radio game on WFAN (660-AM), which will carry all the rest of the Giants games.
The game at Carolina on Thursday, Sept. 20 will be televised locally on WPIX-11 and the NFL Network.
There’s still no word on which New York TV station will carry the Monday, Dec. 3, game with Washington (national on ESPN).
The Jets’ preseason schedule is much easier to follow. The Aug. 10 game at Cincinnati (7:30 p.m.), Aug. 18 game with the Giants (7 p.m.) and Aug. 30 game at Philadelphia (6:30 p.m.) will air on WCBS-2. The Aug. 26 game with visiting Carolina (8 p.m.) is a national telecast on WNBC-4. All four games will air on flagship radio station WEPN (98.7-FM, 1050-AM).
There is no word on which New York TV station will carry the Jets’ Monday Night Football games with Houston on Oct. 8 and with Tennessee on Dec. 17.
